Diversity. The two shows host the latest designs.

Now a central part of the wider London Design Festival (14-22 September), Tent and Super Brands will again occupy the Old Truman Brewery in East London with the latest products.

This year’s shows see the introduction of a dedicated graduate showcase, Brink. It will have 14 student collectives on show and a space curated by Katie Treggiden editor of Confessions of a Design Geek. ‘Brink really fulfils a need, it will be a focus area for graduates and a door opener for them into industry, all much needed during London Design Festival,’ says Jimmy MacDonald, Tent London founder.

Branded furniture show.

Seal of approval. The upholstery and cabinet event is returning to Cranmore Park for a second edition.

A healthy unit of upholstery and cabinet companies featured at the Branded Furniture Show’s inaugural event last year.

This year Ashley Manor, TCS, Precious Wood, Furniturelink and Annaghmore have signed up to join the established companies who have given their seal of approval to the show again.

‘October is an ideal time of the year to hold an exhibition. This allows retailers the opportunity of ordering stock displays for delivery before the start of the busy winter sale period,’ says a Branded Furniture Show spokesman.

Companies taking part in 2013 include: Annaghmore, Ashley Manor, Buoyant Upholstery, Cavendish Upholstery, Celebrity, Corndell, La-Z-Boy, Gola, JC & MP Smith, Kingstown, Precious Wood, Scanthor, TCS, Valuemark, Welcome Furniture, Westbridge and Wiemann.

There is still time to register for the show which more than 200 retailers visited last year.

Following feedback from last year and in an effort to improve the experience for retailers and exhibitors, it was decided to move the show days to Tuesday and Wednesday.

‘Sunday is such an important trading day for retailers with the Monday also an important follow-up day. This was the main reason for moving the show days to ensure that retailers have every opportunity for visiting the show and to avail themselves of the very special offers that will only be available at this show,’ explains the spokesman.

All exhibiting companies will showcase a selection of their products including bestsellers and new ranges.

‘The Branded Furniture Show is the only one in the UK dedicated to upholstery and cabinet companies. This combination has become a successful formula and appeals to the discerning buyer who wants to focus on these to very important groups,’ adds the spokesman.
